Guildford Manor Wedding Venue Surrey

The Sound & Light Hire Company Provide Turnkey Event Production to Wedding Event at Guildford Manor  

Guildford Manor Hotel & Spa is one of the most exclusive wedding venues in all of Surrey. Set in 10 acres of the Surrey Hills countryside, this boutique hotel provides a beautiful and romantic backdrop for any couple who decides to tie the knot here. 

We had the pleasure of recently providing a turnkey event production package to a happy couple for both the ceremony and the reception. We worked in tandem with Guildford Manor’s in-house wedding coordinator to supply, install, and oversee all aspects of event production not provided by this exclusive use venue. 

So, while the venue was able to provide event production elements such as the floral decorations, a red carpet, lanterns, starlit draping, an easel, and a cake stand & knife, we were in charge of the rest. 

So with that in mind, let’s walk you through our work on this wedding production, starting with the ceremony. 

The Sound & Light Hire Offer Event Production to Wedding Ceremony at Guildford Manor

As is often the case these days, the ceremony itself actually took place outside. At the end of the walkway for the outdoor ceremony was the outdoor Pavillion, which would house the happy couple during the exchange of rings and vows. 

We lined the walkway with two banks of wedding festoon lighting that gave off a lovely warm yellow glow in the late afternoon twilight. We also set up several wireless uplighters that were pointed at the Pavillion and nearby trees to accentuate their features and bring them to life. 

We also supplied a boom mic and a couple of speakers for the string quartet, and we provided the registrar with a lapel mic that we also ran through the same PA speakers. We had a sound engineer on-site to make sure everything ran smoothly and that the sound was nicely balanced. 

Once the ceremony was over, it was time for the reception, which we had been busy setting up the morning of the wedding. 

Turnkey Event Production for Surrey Wedding Reception

Celebrations moved indoors to the Lytton Strachey suite for the reception. Here, we were responsible for everything not covered by the hotel, including but not limited to the stage, sound equipment, event lighting, and dance floor hire

We started by constructing one of our live band stages before moving on to the professional PA system setup required by the professional wedding band. We installed and operated a comprehensive setup that included speakers, stage monitors, amps, subwoofers, and vocal and instrumental microphones, which we all run and monitored through a Midas digital mixing desk

Next, we erected a truss above and around the rear of the stage, which housed a few stage lighting fixtures as well as disco lights, a laser machine, and a couple of moving heads. Lastly, we started laying the dance floor, all 100+ square metres of it! The happy couple opted for our white starlit LED dance floor as it was very in keeping with the overall wedding decor theme. 

We had our sound engineer switch over from the ceremony to the reception. He was accompanied by a couple of our technicians who handled the stage and lighting respectively during proceedings.
